Don't worry..Be holy

Blessings to all! Today was an awesome service in church. My pastor said something that really made me think about things and people and I want to share this. I have learned so much about myself and about life from Jesus Christ and the more I learn the more thankful I am.

If we seek happiness we will never find it until we become holy. God is the only one who can give us true happiness through eternal life. We all want to be happy and be comfortable in life, BUT, when we think we are happy and comfortable we tend to want more and the void is yet to be filled. Seek holiness rather than happiness. Having a relationship with God will fill all the void and you will be happy. Material things will mean nothing when you are gone from this earth. Live in the world but don't depend on the world to make you happy. I would rather live spiritually happy than materialistically happy. The treasures in heaven are worth far more than the junk here on earth.

In everything you do, put God first, and He will direct you and crown your efforts with success. Always put God first! Don't count your blessings while whining about the things you don't have. If you do you are not truly thanking God for what you are whining. When we put God first everything will fall into place. It may be a better job, more money, a house, a car, whatever your heart desires but always but Him first. Be truly thankful, be content and ALWAYS put God first. I see so this going on so many times and I have been guilty of it also. Nothing will quite go right until you give all to the Lord and put Him first!
